Heartbeat from Softube is a software drum synthesizer, mostly based on modeled analog synthesis. At its center, the plug-in contains eight instrument channels with two different bass drum channels, delivering a variety of textures. Two snare drum channels have six parameters each, which allows for producing anything from edgy rim shots, soft snare rolls, to machine-like claps. The hi-hat and cymbal channels include flexible synthesis engines, while the identical percussion channels can be used to model anything from 80's-style synthetic toms, to cowbells and noise drops.

The effects section includes slightly adapted versions of the company's Valley People Dyna-mite dynamic shaping model and the TSAR-1 Reverb. Filter Echo is a filtered delay effect with adjustable cut off and resonance parameters. Adjustable output saturation is also available. Each of the eight channels has a dedicated mixer channel with controls for volume, pan, ping-pong (auto panning), EQ (adapted specifically for each instrument), and send levels to the reverb and delay effects.

For additional interaction, the software features an Auto Layer Machine with four channels that can each be used to layer sounds or trigger a chain of events. A Chaos slider insures things don't stay too predictable. Flexible global velocity parameter knobs for volume, pitch, attack and decay allow for responsive velocity changes, and a Time Gate shortens the overall decay to create a stuttery and stiff machine sound.
